Doomy Techno | Andy Butler x Richard Kennedy – ‘You Can Shine’

Andy Butler, the frontman for Hercules & Love Affair, is debuting his solo EP next month, but today he has shared with us his new single.

Hot off the press, “You Can Shine” is a dance infused dark disco with gospel vocals from Richard Kennedy. If you’re familiar with the work of Mr. Butler, then you might be surprised by this gospel-like direction, but it serves a purpose.

See what Andy wrote on his soundcloud:

I wanted to tap into the gospel tradition, for there to be a testifying quality to the record,” he continues. “Richard and I talk in the lyrics about putting ego aside and allowing people around you to shine. You shine when you acknowledge other people’s shine, even, if you will, the creator’s shine. I hope we’ve created something new. House is often soulful but you very rarely hear a big gospel-inflected voice paired with booming, doomy techno.

♥| Full Intention x Penny F – ‘I Will Wait For You’

It’s not often that I find myself listening to a house track religiously. Okay, that’s not 100% true..it happens a lot! But I must say that Full Intention’s new track “I Will Wait For You” is such a majestic track that has snuck it’s way into my heart.

Featuring the ocean breeze vocals of Penny F, “I’ll Wait For You” is a delightful track that has a powerful build.

The track starts off with some soulful drums and then a few atmospheric synths trickle their way in. This glorious intro is followed up by the alluring Penny F singing her “I Will Wait For You’ ballad.

It’s yet another great release from the guys of Full Intention.

Give it a spin:

Disco Funk | Marcus Marr – ‘Peacemakers’

Brixton producer Marcus Marr is bringing some SERIOUS funk with his single “Peacemakers.”

This wicked funky track is the second hot edit off Marcus Marr’s latest release, Brown Sauce. Albeit it’s just a two-sided release, both track serve up something fresh…but “Peacemakers” is the clear winner.

Can you diiiiiiiiiig it?!

Deep House | Kenny Hectyc – ‘Richness is Life’ (Preview)

If you’ve read my blog in the past and pay attention to every blog post, then you’ve probably read my feature on Kenny Hectyc. But I totally understand if life gets in the way and you don’t soak up every ounce of good house music…

But today you’ll want to check out these new heat from Mr. Hectyc.

Sampling a quote from music icon, Bob Marley, this new track “Richness is Life” is a solid combination of roots, deep house, and bass.

Albeit it’s only a snippet of what’s to come, I can certainly say I’m digging what I’m hearing so far!

Give it a spin:
